What is Go Parks?

Go Parks is a project giving the residents of Coventry new and exciting ways to use parks and green spaces in the city. Go Parks will bring everything from sport and physical activity to wellbeing and culture elements into your local park.

With an increasing number of people now using parks and greenspaces for activity as a result of COVID-19, we’re promoting ways to be active in parks that are fun, simple and safe.

We are celebrating Coventry’s UK City of Culture 2021 title throughout the Challenge by giving it a cultural twist.  

Not only will schools and residents be getting active by using parks in the city from 1-31 October, but also by taking part in, and visiting cultural activities and venues.
